A Prayer Prompted by Mark 3

Heavenly Father,

We see Jesus having to endure being misunderstood by his family and accused of being evil by the religious leaders of his day.

We do not want to make those mistakes. We realize that if we reject Jesus, then there is no payment available for our sins against you.

Our relationship with you, through Christ, is and always needs to be the most important relationship in our lives.

It makes us your family and gives us the truest family we will ever have – the family of God.

Help us to be obedient and willing to do your will. Help us to respond well to whatever calling you place upon our lives.

And help us to see Jesus as Lord, the one who truly deserves our worship and complete obedience.

In Christ,

Amen.

Palmer St. Podcast: The *Work* of God’s Spirit

The ordinary becomes something extraordinary when God is involved.  The work of the Holy Spirit does not have to look supernatural.  He works through our work, using earthly materials and very human capabilities.
